Peninsula Police Blotter: Neighborhood crime log

A log of daily events from Peninsula police departments.

Daly City

Battery and brandishing: A man got punched and kicked in Gellert Park on Tuesday. The attacker showed a gun butt inside his waistband to the victim prior to departing in a gray Honda Civic.

Kneel at wheel: The $300 driver’s seat was stolen from an unlocked car parked overnight Aug. 18 on the 1-100 block of Poncetta Street.

Redwood City

Ignored fugitive: A distraught woman called police to report that she had removed her daughters from the residence at 4:25 p.m. Aug. 24 because her husband was drinking heavily for four days and insisted he wanted to die. Responding officers confirmed that the husband was wanted on $110,000 in warrants by the Merced County Sheriff’s Office.

When Merced was contacted, the authorities there declined to spend the time or money to transport the fugitive back to face charges, so local police said they had no choice except to release him.

Burlingame

Surprise, señor: A resident of the 800 block of Edgehill Drive told police at 4:58 p.m. Wednesday that he was surprised to have just discovered that his debit card had been charged in Mexico three different times. The total damage incurred was $765.

Millbrae

Space-hog parents: Police gave verbal warnings at 8:24 a.m. Wednesday to six drivers who were impeding the flow of traffic in front of Taylor Middle School on the 800 block of Taylor Avenue while dropping off their offspring.

Twofer burglaries: Two vehicles were broken into sometime overnight Wednesday inside the locked garage of an apartment building on the 1500 block of Frontera Way.

A $700 GPS unit was taken from one window-smashed car, but the unknown thief found nothing worth stealing in the second vehicle. Entry may have been made through a damaged pedestrian gate on the Vallejo Street side of the building.
